Pets have always been part of my life, and I grew up on a small sheep farm. We had plenty of farm animals, and pets; including dogs, cats, chickens and more. It was my responsiblity to care for thirteen big hunting dogs! Through the years we have our own pets, and I have sat with family pets. Our own kitty very much enjoys her sitters when we are away, and so I understand what a difference it makes for the pets and homeowner to have a great sitter! When we found pet sitter s, it was clear that being a pet/house sitter would be a good fit for me as well. After retiring from a career in healthcare, I have had some wonderful experiences pet/house sitting, making new furry friends, and people friends, and exploring new areas! The companionship of pets absolutely cannot be replaced!
